    Everquest: enchanter & beastlord - Enchanter for the best cc ever seen in a mmorpg, beastlord for its versatility and never a dull moment.
    Vanguard: bloodmage & sorceror - Shame the game never evolved for its great class design (probably the most interesting set of classes+mechanic in mmorpg history).
    WoW: shaman (healer with click-heal mod) - Amazingly fun ae healing on raids but also in group
    Neverwinter: control wizard - For its tactical action based crowd control
    gw2: mesmer - the class not the game
    Diablo2: necromancer (skelliemancer build) - curse, teleport, watch aura enchanced skellies destroy anything faster than a hammerdin.

    The bard in Vanguard hands down best and original class ever made in a MMO.

    Hands down, EQ1 Bard.  Twisting songs as fast as possible and adjusting for stuns and "missed notes" made for awesome support during battles.

    In second place, my Storm/Electric Defender in City of Heroes.

    Third place goes to the Druid in WoW.  Shape changers rock in any system.

    My guy on Darkfall that I can switch between Bow, Magic, and what ever weapon I choose as the situation changes, based on what I have invested time in practicing and improving.

    Definitely Elf hunter for Global MU Origin high damage, high evade rate that compensate for her low defense and most especially nice butt and drop dead gorgeous.

    Thats not really a class, Darkfall is not the right game in a discussion about which MMO class is most fun since it doesn't have basic classes (and prestige classes isn't the same thing)..

    vg necro - puller, corpse retrieval, meat/orb, good dps.

    I loved the Aion Chanter! 
    Also I love buffer classes, like the prophet in L2, despite being a healer class he was actually hitting hard because of all the self buffs.

    Unfortunately with BDO and BnS, there's that p2w garbage and all the LYING from the Devs with BDO.  Shame really- good games.

    So just focus on the gameplay and ignore the cash shop and P2W elements?

    Also what lying from the devs? We've been through this before - haven't we - BDO devs have clearly said - as in black and white post before the game launched that they will be reevaluating being able to sell cash shop items after the "launch phase". That's exactly what they did

    What lying did BnS devs do - or was this only for BDO?
    Ya no idea what he is talking about with BnS, they don't exactly talk much at NCwest. I mean BDO has nothing on the P2W nature of BnS, they aren't even in the same ballpark.
    Hmm, can you read?  I specifically said "all the LYING with the Devs with BDO".  Granted the sentance was horribly constructed, but I singled out BDO for the lying.

    They lied about a great number of things, not just the p2w conversion (which they DID lie about- you can point to the one statement "during the release period" and COMPLETELY IGNORE statements from marketing manager saying the game will not be p2w and they will avoid "cash shop shannangins" and that's why it costs us money as opposed to the f2p versions in other areas- you can ignore those statments all you want but it's a matter of opinion at best and totally inaccurate at worst to say they didn't lie about the game going p2w).

    For example, they said they were giving out tier 5 horses with pre-orders.  It wasn't until players discovered the horses were actually tier 3 months later that they fixed it.

    Hmm, what else- they said they were going to release all the awakenings at the same time for our version.  Nope, staggered release over about 6 months.

    BDO may not be as P2W as BnS, but it's still P2W.

    This is all common knowledge everywhere on the internet besides the mmorpg.com forums.

    Lotro - Warden
    Gw2 - Guardian
    Rangarok Online - Rogue/Stalker
    Tree of Savior - Linker (sadly most of skills were just broken until I stop playing)


    Had fun with many other classes from the same games or from other games, but I think these were the most creative ones within their "package" or "stereotype".

    Tree of Savior is the one with the most creative classes I ever seen on a mmorpg. Sadly the company behind the game forgot to fix anything in favor of cash shop... It is really sad.

    Just one is impossible.

    Everquest Enchanter was so wonderful to play all the time living in fear of the enchant breaking and the creature who was just tanking for you turning on you. The Bard with the twisting and kiting in Desert of Ro ...fun times.

    Anarchy Online both Trader and Fixer such wonderful skills and interesting game play.

    Grouping in FFXI as a Red Mage bringing all your different skills to use ,busy like a housewife with 7 kids.

    Mastermind in City of Villains the micromanagement of the pets and working in groups to keep pets in line while using your other skills. The variety of skills made the game so interesting.

    Warrior Priest in WAR. Frontline healer that had to do damage to charge heals. Probably the only time I truly enjoyed playing a healer, although most of the healers in the game were pretty decent. 1H and book was the more effective build stat wise, but I preferred the aesthetic of a healer swinging a two hand maul
        I have a friend that played a WP in War also ran alot with him ... A well played WP was quite a force in the LAkes... So much fun ... think ill go play some War!!!    WaaAAAgggGgGHhHHhH!!!!

    I'm playing BDO and don't see much pay to win. But I don't PvP and most people on the server I'm on just dress up their waifus lol. So, very little PvP actually ever happens. I found more pay to win items in guild wars 2 than I did in BDO. Like immortal crafting/harvesting tools that were stupidely expensive, but if you didn't have them you'd need to spend tons of game gold on the crafting/harvesting tools. That pissed me off in GW2 (especially because I love to craft/harvest and a dynamic economy). Most games either do limited tools you need to keep re-buying, OR, immortal tools for everyone. GW2 double dipped there.

    As for BDO company "lying", dunno. I don't see any difference between any other MMO. Blizzard has said things about WoW and they never happen, or it isn't like they said it be or it ends up different.

    I remember back in WoD they said there would be a ton of content and no content drought.

    Guess what happened in WoD? The longest content drought in WoW's history.

    They again said the same thing in Legion, no content drought. But I doubt it, they said the same thing in WoD.

    Every MMO company and game companies in general changes their plans (or lying as that one poster said lol). Changing their plans isn't really lying though. People change plans for all kinds of reasons in real life.

    Though there are actual companies that lie. Like No Man's Sky is one big lie...that is a game that truly lied. And if changing plans is lying, then Blizzard sure did one big fat lie in WoD. And probably will repeat in Legion.

    I don't see much in the way of BDO lying, not different than GW2 or WoW or most other MMOs I know of. And BDO cash shop (at least for a PVE/crafter focused player, maybe it is for a pvp player dunno) is way less pay to win than GW2 one is.

    Same. Chloromancer in Rift is a close second. I just like healing others based on the damage I do. I gravitate toward those kinds of classes and skills in all MMOs I play.
    I also played a Chloromancer as my main in Rift when I was there. Almost as fun, but the melee aspect of the WP made it pretty wild sometimes

    Necromancer in Everquest.

    It was so versatile in terms of abilities which allowed for a lot of creative strategies for combat.

    EQ Druid was also good but slightly less versatile.  It was still in command of a large array of different abilities and could help others to level quickly in off time.
